"Plagiarism is considered as academic dishonesty. It is the action or practice of taking someone else's work, idea, etc., and passing it off as one's own; literary theft”.(Oxford English Dictionary)

The expression of original ideas in any form is considered intellectual property and is protected by copyright laws.

Almost all forms of expressions, original inventions fall under copyright protection as long as they are recorded in some way (such as a book, article, art piece, musical score or a computer file)

  • Manipulating the already published data or presenting the fake data in your work
  • Paraphrasing, changing words and sentence structure of a source is considered as copying if the source is not duly acknowledged.
  • Taking so many words or ideas from a source or different sources that makes up the majority of your work, whether you give credit or not is considered as copying.
